Abstract

This paper reports the shear strength and deformation characteristics of compacted residual granite soil. Nine series of tests were conducted using computer control direct shear box apparatus with normal stress level ranging between 0.05 to 0.4 MPa. The influence of moisture content on the shear strength properties is specifically discussed. A relationship between the angle of internal friction and moisture content for residual soil is also proposed. Test results are then used to calculate the non-linear (hyperbolic) model constants and analyse the stress-strain response of the compacted residual soil under direct shear loading. Comparison of numerical predictions and results of direct shear tests are made for verification of the model parameters. It is observed that the predicted stress-strain behaviour using model constants showed fairly reasonable agreement compare to that of the laboratory test results.
